Everton v Tottenham betting tips: Conte makes Premier League return
Preview and odds for Sunday’s Premier League clash
Everton hope to snap a winless run when they host Antonio Conte’s Tottenham on Sunday, so we look at the odds to find some Everton v Tottenham betting tips.
The Toffeemen have lost their last three games, while Spurs’ defeat to Manchester United signalled the end of manager Nuno Espirito Santo and the arrival of Conte.
Sunday’s match, which takes place at Goodison Park, kicks off at 2pm.
Everton v Tottenham match odds
After a good start to his reign at Everton, Rafa Benitez has seen his side lose their last three Premier League games and he will bid to right the ship when Tottenham arrive with a new man at the helm.
Antonio Conte, who led Chelsea to the title, takes charge of Tottenham for the first time in the Premier League, having signed an 18-month deal with the north London outfit on Tuesday.
In his previous stint in England with Chelsea, Conte remained unbeaten against Everton (W3 D1) with his side keeping a clean sheet in all four matches. Spurs are 6/4 to win and 21/10 to keep a clean sheet.
The biggest problem Conte faces is energising striker Harry Kane, who has looked out of sorts since his proposed move to Manchester City was denied.
As a result, Tottenham have managed just nine Premier League goals in their first 10 games this season, their fewest at this stage of a season since 2013-14 (also nine). Their tally of 103 shots is their fewest after 10 Premier League matches in any season since 2003-04.
Kane does like playing against Everton, though. He has scored 11 goals in 12 Premier League appearances against them, including five braces. Kane can be backed at 6/4 to score at any time in Everton vs Tottenham betting tips and 17/2 to score two or more.
Successive home defeats by West Ham and Watford, and another abject display in a 2-1 reverse at Wolves on Monday, has left Everton in 10th spot, a place and a point behind Tottenham in the table.
They have now lost nine home league matches in 2021, and have only ever lost 10 in a calendar year on three previous occasions, doing so in 1929, 1958 and most recently in 1993.
Everton are 15/8 to end their winless run which stretched to four matches since beating Norwich 2-0 on September 25.

Everton v Tottenham head-to-head
Historically, this looks a great spot for Conte to start his Tottenham reign, since Everton have won just one of their last 17 Premier League games against Tottenham (D8 L8), beating them 1-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September last season.
Spurs are also unbeaten in their last eight league visits to Goodison Park (W3 D5) and it is 2/5 that they get at least a point from the game.
Benitez’s first ever Premier League game was a 1-1 draw against Spurs in August 2004. The Spaniard has lost his last four Premier League games against Spurs, having lost just two of his first 14 against them in the competition (W7 D5). The draw is available at odds of 11/5.
Everton have lost just once in their last five meetings in all competitions with Spurs, however (W2 D3), and seven of the last 10 clashes have produced three goals or more. It is 21/10 that there will be three or more total goals and that looks a worthy option in Everton v Tottenham betting tips.
Everton v Tottenham key battles
For Conte, the biggest test will be getting the most out of Kane, who is averaging just 2.3 shots per game and has scored just one goal in the Premier League this term.
Everton could do with a better return from Andros Townsend, who is a player that appears to have a few good games, then disappears.
He has never scored in 11 Premier League appearances against his former side Spurs and has been on the losing side in eight of those 11 games against his old club. He is 10/3 to score at any time.
